Chemistry Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

The objective of the chemistry minor is to provide broad introductory course work and laboratory experience to science majors without the more technical mathematical and chemical prerequisites required of the chemistry major. The chemistry minor is open to all CLAS students and should prove beneficial for science majors, pre-professional health science majors and students seeking science education certification.

Course work and grade requirements that must be satisfied to obtain a chemistry minor include:

  • a minimum of 20 semester hours of chemistry courses
  • a minimum of 10 upper-division chemistry hours
  • upper-division course work must include three of the six subdisciplines that comprise chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, physical and environmental chemistry
  • a minimum 2.0 GPA for chemistry courses taken at UC Denver
  • all chemistry minor courses must be taken for a letter grade rather than with the pass/fail grading option
  • to satisfy the department residency requirement, a minimum of 7 upper-division hours of chemistry must be taken at the Downtown Campus

Course Requirements

All upper division chemistry courses at UC Denver will satisfy course work requirements for the minor. Furthermore, the Department of Chemistry offers courses that have minimum chemistry and mathematics prerequisites and should be considered for the chemistry minor degree.






 Course selections to be announced.
